To those who’s not familiar with St. John Bosco, or more popularly known as Don Bosco, he was an Italian Catholic priest who dedicated his life to the betterment and education of young children and employed teaching methods based on love rather than punishment which was why he was given the title of “Father and Teacher of Youth” after he was canonized. He was also the founder of the Salesian Congregation.
